      The home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win.  It must be December in Washington.  Welcome to week 15!

      There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year.  Those that want to tank and those that want to win.  If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong.  You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business.  The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the doublethink.  
       
      Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages.  It does and it is undeniable.  Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not.  What we need for that to happen is simple.  Redskins lose out.  Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Bengals.  All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes.  We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.   
       
      Before that happens, we have a game to play.  It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented doublethink.  While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well.  Assuming they have a soul and any decency.  There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game.  If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.   
       
      Pregame Prediction:  Redskins 23 – Eagles 30  
      More interesting game we are missing because we are still watching the Redskins:  Packers – Bears  
      Things I am snacking on:  Brownie.   
      Number of colons used:  Six.  (so far)  
       
      Check back for updates.  I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.
       
      1st Quarter Redskins 7 - 3 Eagles
      "The Closer" Haskins showed up for work early today and hit his former college teammate for a touchdown.  He really took the life out of this crowd in *checks notes* Fedex Field.

Presidential Election :11/3/2020- The Impotus Puppet vs The Rise of BootyWalker & some other Dems

Recommended Posts

The only way a third party hurts Trump is if a right wing candidate eats into Trump's base of support.  That's the only way Trump could be hurt by a third party candidate.

People vote third party because they want to protest the candidate they are expected to vote for and/or because they think that candidate will win anyway.

 

Trump isn't winning or losing based on third party candidates. It's not worth worrying about.

I voted third party where I could in 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. I don't believe either party serves the interests of the majority of Americans.  Voted Dem in 2018 and will in 2020 but will return to my third party ways in 2022. If firmly believe we need a third and maybe even 4th party or just have independents instead.

Makes not a single bit of sense 

 

Me or Beto? He should be running for Senate and get out of the race for POTUS.

I think all third party candidates benefit Trump. Even someone like Hogan. 

I wish we could have an up or down recall vote for Trump.

He could just bail-out Exxon/Mobil.  I mean, it wouldn't be the craziest thing he did on any given day.

As August winds down, we are getting close to the Presidential race getting serious.  After Labor Day, more voters will actually start paying attention. Especially, in the early primary states.  We are only 5 months away from those early primary/caucus states.  The serious campaigns will be hiring more people and have their people fanning out to those early states.

 

Time for a new look at the race, with the remaining candidates:

 

The real contenders- These candidates are most likely to be on the primary/caucus ballots

Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren , Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg &  Kamala Harris

 

The also rans- These candidates could be on the ballot next year but they need do do better this fall:

Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke & Julian Castro   -  If they don't show movement after the Sept. & Oct. debates; their candidacies are probably over before Thanksgiving.

 

On Life Support:

Kirsten Gillibrand - it's possible she could drop out soon.  She isn't going to qualify for the September debate but she probably try to make the October debate.  If she doesn't qualify for the October debate, I expect her to drop out then.

 

The delusional

John Delaney - he has little support & is out of step with today's Democratic party. He's independent wealthy, so he can stay in as long as he wants to waste his money.  He really just needs to drop out.

Andrew Yang - Interesting idea.  He's not going anywhere.  He's in the Sept. & Oct. debates. He's got money. So, he'll probably run as long as he wants to. 

Tulsi Gabbard - stop winning about debate criteria. You're a loon & a Syrian/Russian puppet.  If she doesn't qualify for the October debate, she's probably done then.

Marianne Williamnson - She provides some interesting quotes but she isn't qualifying for the September debate. If she doesn't qualify for the October debate, she's probably done. 

Tim Ryan - he needs to follow the lead of the others who dropped out & just drop out. He won't be making anymore debates.

Joe Sestak - He's barely running. He just needs to drop out.

Bill de Blasio - They are real progressives in this race. Why is he still running.  My guess, he's done in October; when he fails to make that debate.

Steve Bullock- he should be running for Senate instead.  My guess, he's gone in October; when he doesn't qualify for that debate.

Tom Steyer- He may qualify for September's debate. He only needs one more poll.  This is an ego trip. He'll probably run until he gets tired of burning his money.

 

I still think Elizabeth Warren will be the nominee. I think Joe Biden will implode.  There's still way to many Dems running but I don't think the field will drastically shrink until after the October debate deadline.

 

The GOP 

Bill Weld - he's not going to beat Trump. I read an article where their were rumblings that Mark Sanford, Jeff Flake and John Kasich are thinking about it; depending on what happens between now and the end of the year.  They are all delusional.  Noone will beat Trump.  Could they do what Buchanan did in 92 against Papa Bush & do well enough in New Hampshire where they weaken Trump? Will those who don't like Trump be willing to register a protest vote, in large enough numbers?  Stay tuned.   I don't see this happening because any candidate that runs and weakens Trump; will be forever blamed if Trump loses in 2020. Their GOP career would be over.

He would if it was Kasich.

 

But I agree with you. Based on what is actually going to happen in the real world, it’s not worth worrying about. Ain’t gonna happen.

It's a shame Trumps stain on Haley will never go away, I really like her.

Everyone associated with Trump is stained forever, they can't shake that stain.
